Weird/missing text issues in steam app

hi new archlabs user here,
i included steam as one of my preinstalled packages and upon booting it up, it was very difficult to use because many of the panels were missing and almost all of the OS-side text (windows, drop down menus, buttons) were completely illegible. i can’t tell if this is a font issue, a Compton issue or something else but i couldn’t find much in other sources. i’ve included a reference image below:

You need to ensure the MS fonts are installed

I’ll look into this and make sure the right fonts are installed when picking steam, apologies for the issue.

The link from Dobbie to the arch wiki will have the info you need.

sorry, should’ve checked the wiki.

thanks for the rapid answer though, this forum is super useful
